We stayed at the Matterhorn one night while passing through on a motorcycle trip. It is off the main drag and up on a hill, and away from the town traffic. Nice and quiet! The owner lives on site and is friendly and personable and gave us great advice on a new restaurant that we wouldn't have found without her.... More

Five of us spent the night and got up very early to climb a nearby fourteener. While the motel is dated it was clean and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even asking if we needed more towels.

We were there for three nights. The room was clean when we arrived, but no housekeeping after that. We had just never heard of this. The bathroom and shower were the smallest we had ever seen. In the shower stall you couldn't bend forward enough to wash you knee without hitting your head on the shower wall. The room was... More

My wife and I just go home from a weekend in Lake City. We stayed 2 nights at the Matterhorn and it was very nice. We only ran into the lady that was running the place once, when we arrived, and she was very friendly and helpful. (We were out having fun all day, so we weren't in the room... More

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at the Matternhorn. Employees are always upbeat, friendly, they're pet-friendly. They're accommodating and helpful. The motel is walking distance to everything in town, including the ice park, which was the purpose of our trip. It's near the running trail in town, and the forest road that passes the ice park. Very convenient. I... More

This place is so charming and is nestled against a mountain with decent views of Lake City. The mountain views are fantastic and the night sky is just amazing. The room itself is perfect for one or two people, if you don't need a lot of space (which I don't) Cleaner than most high end hotels I have stayed at,... More

This motel is possibly as good as you can get in Lake City, CO. We loved the town and its "down-home" small-town vibe, yet in traveling there one must scale down expectations (except for Bruno's Restaurant - separate review)! Matterhorn Mountain Motel is run by a very friendly lady who appears to run a one-lady show and keeps a very... More

We stayed here two nights while hiking in the area. The rooms are clean and pretty comfortable. The bathroom shower is extremely small. There is no air conditioning, so keep that in mind if visiting during a hot time of year. A fan is provided though.

A pleasant surprise after a long day of Jeeping. The rooms are very affordable, clean and comfortable. The hosts are most accommodating and treat the guests with care and respect! This is a very nice place to stay a few days!

Love this little motel! They were so nice and accommodating. Lake City is a great little town to visit and the Matterhorn is worth staying at! The motel is nestled right up against the mountain! Very clean rooms and great atmosphere. Highly Recommended
